    Quality Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Clarksville, TN
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Akebono Corporation (North America) (Clarksville, TN) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Very friendly, after a general overview on the phone, asked to come in for multiple 1:1 interviews. They gave a nice tour. They had a new Quality Manager and new Japanese owners (formerly a Bosch facility)

    All the staff seemed very nice. If I was to say one thing they needed to do to improve the process is to tell interviewers not to show up in a suit. The facility is very dirty due to the processes involved.

    Other than that I found them a very positive experience.

    Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Akebono Corporation (North America) in February 2012.

    Interview

    I received a call and set up an interview for the next week. I had 3 interviews, all around 45 minutes each. The first was with a manager, then someone I would be working alongside with. They asked me a series of technical and behavioral questions. The last interview was very basic, mostly telling me what benefits they offered if I was offered the job. I felt like I was pretty confident leaving the interview. However, I STILL haven't gotten a call saying I wasn't going to be offered a job, and it's been almost a month. About a week later, I got an email from a recruiting agency telling me about a potential job in the same area... turns out it was the same job, they just hired a recruiting agency to find someone. Real cool, so not only do I not receive a call, but then a headhunter tries to get me a job at the place I just interviewed for! The position is still posted online too......
